Captain: Bari style oven
I am trying to decide on the finish, My father is from Bari Italy and I am wondering if there is a paticular desing may be from that region which is Apulia, if not I am down to the original Pompii style or a tuscan look.

Bari Oven
Great question. I met the family who owns the Colle Val d'Elsa oven and found out that it is a professionally made oven from Bari. I even tracked down the brochure. Later, I saw tht same oven at a building supply store in the south, but outside of Urban Naples.

My view is that the Bari oven is very similar to the Tuscan oven. Another way of thinking about it is that the Naples pizzeria ovens are very particular, and just about everybody else in Italy builds the slightly higher, Traditional, dome style. Our precast producer calls the higher style "traditionale" and the lower style "volta bassa" or low dome.

You can see from the brickwork and dome shape that is has the traditional, higher design.

Here are the Bari oven photos. If you can build something like this, I think you will be happy.

There is a whole series to click through.

Here is another picture of the enclosure:

Thanks for that info I like the opening in that photo. Do you have any photos of the extirior styles of ovens built in Bari.Thanks again

I think that opening is pretty interesting too. The arch is higher, but the actual opening looks shorter due to the door design (which I think is needed for temp control)...

Other than the standard "gabled house" enclosure they use for that oven, I don't have any other photos. As a rule, I think you see more walled enclosures here in general than any other style.
